This is my first post. I never thought I'd see the day I'd even lurk here, let alone seek info and actually post. I've been shooting for the better part of 30 years. 1911's have been my passion and I always thought Glocks were ugly. Then I saw my first G36. I don't know what it was other than lust at first sight. I finally aquired one and then I got nervous at all the FTE and stove pipe jams I read here. My first day out with the G36 I had 48 failure to extract. Not happy. Then I started reading more and thought it may be my reloads. I load them down on purpose. So it's off to Walmart today and I pick up some WWB. I also had some R&P ball at home and some Winchester JHP. Not a single jam today. Pistol runs like the champ I'd hoped to it would. At the 25 foot distance I put all the rounds fired into a 4" circle.:embarassed: After a few more "confidence building" trips to the range, I will start to carry this pistol. It will be nice to not have a hammer or beavertail digging into my fat. There will ALWAYS be a 1911 in my stable as that design is my first love. However unlike a spousal relationship, firearms don't get jealous when you leave them behind and take the "mistress" out to play. Thank you Glock Talk for the info you have shared.
